A welcome from the Principal
The warmest welcome to Longsands Academy Sixth Form – where we provide an excellent, inclusive academic education for all our students, and also a lot more!
At Longsands, we believe passionately that all students have the potential to succeed in life and in our Sixth Form we give them the opportunity to do just that.
Our dedicated and passionate team of well-qualified and highly-skilled teachers encourage students to strive for their academic best, in a supportive environment with smaller class sizes that gives plenty of opportunity for enrichment and development, so students leave us prepared for post 18 studies and ready to enter the world of work.
We provide a range of A Level courses to suit all interests, as well as a small number of Level 3 BTEC qualifications, and students achieve excellent results. However, we recognise that education is not solely based on achieving those vital qualifications, but also about becoming a confident young adult. We offer high quality pastoral care, careers guidance, and Higher Education support so that our students are fully informed of the wealth of opportunities open to them in the future.
Our Sixth Form is in the heart of the community, serving the two secondary schools in St Neots and beyond. Students are encouraged to take their place as role models and mentors to those in younger years. We place a high emphasis on respect and positive behaviour, which ensures the Sixth Form is a happy and safe place to learn. There is a vibrant student body with a wide range of enrichment and leadership activities for students to get involved in.
We are ambitious for our students, and our expectations of conduct and commitment are high. Our Sixth Form is a place for students who want to work hard and realise their potential, and we are proud to support them on their journey.
Thank you for your interest in our Sixth Form. I look forward to meeting you and working together with you to help make your future a successful and exciting one.
